Apropos to my recent post, former CIA Director Michael Hayden says President Obama should have the authority to shut down the Internet.
As is always the case, the government uses so-called "crises" and "emergencies" to create even more power for themselves.
This also shows how pathetically ignorant and self-absorbed these bureaucrats are. The Internet is not simply an appliance that has a power button - it is a system of networks with countless redundancies.
Or maybe they're just afraid that the people are waking up thanks in large part to the valuable information made available by the Internet.
